Hows your temp gauge ?? in the middle ??
if so you have a restriction in your system or air.
bmw's are very famous for getting bubbles on the system and can overheat your vehicle so check your coolant level " on an incline "
re-fill if needed. turn it on with the radiator cap of. let it run for about an hour with your heater at the highest, keep track of your temp gauge and your coolant. refill to specs " marks " without putting the cap on. let it cool of for another hour, check coolant level again, if you had air it will be low, refill again and you should get hot air like crazy
